Chichi Chitra
Cagey Chelydra
Candid Chelodina

Chie *Janaese name for girl meaning “Wisdom” “Knowledge”

Chihiro *Japanese name for girl and boy meaning ”very deep" “super wide” “very high mountain” “Pursue”

Parents give this name to child, want he/she to be curious about various things and have a willingness to work hard on what you like. It is the one of famous animation movie “Spirited Away” Japanese name “Sen To Chihiro no Kamikakushi.”

Carbon Caretta
Since lots of robots have strong carbon parts, and also its organic matter :slight_smile:
And Caretta for known and cool scientific name
Artwork would be looking cool with silver and black coloured Caretta Caretta
And ROS Carbon looks great to me.
